How to run a pop-up beer garden without being shut down immediately

"This week, a pair of pop-up beer gardens were shut down by the Department of Licenses & Inspections. First, the somewhat controversial Point Breeze Beer Garden, and then the Uptown Beer Garden at the Mellon Bank Center were both slapped with cease-and-desist notices for failing to obtain the requisite regulatory approvals.

This is surprising, given how smitten Philadelphians of a certain socioeconomic status are with the pop up phenomena, and because the pop-up beer gardens essentially operate by using regulatory loopholes. By definition, exploiting loopholes means there is less paperwork to screw up."
